The average lifespan is 28,000 days. It might sound like a lot, but it’s really very brief. So how do you figure out what to do with the time you have been given? First, stop preparing to live and actually live the fullness of each season you find yourself in. Next, recognize that you have the freedom to decide what you will do. Finally, assume a posture of humble dependence on God. We were not created for just 28,000 days. We were created to live in relationship with God for eternity. The cross connects us to God and lets us put our short lives into the context of a much bigger story.
